Still, it sounds interesting so I felt I should share it. After all only a billion people are on Facebook, while two or three people read my blog. From the website:
The 8th Annual Short Story Challenge is a creative writing competition open to writers around the world. There are 3 rounds of competition. In the 1st Round (February 7-15, 2014), writers are placed randomly in heats and are assigned a genre, subject, and character assignment. Writers have 8 days to write an original story no longer than 2,500 words. ...There is also a Facebook page.
Ah, finally read far enough to see the entry fee.
The entry fee is USD $39* before the Early Entry Deadline of January 9, 2014 and then USD $49* until the Final Entry Deadline of February 6, 2014.
*Get $5 off the entry fee just for tweeting! Click here to post a simple tweet or facebook post to receive $5 off the entry fee.
Don't think I will be entering now. Glad I read the Facebook comments to learn more. Anyway, if you are interested, good luck!
